The North Bergen Free Public Library is offering free 15-week citizenship courses at both the main library and the Kennedy Branch. Beginner and high intermediate/advanced level classes are available.
The courses are funded through the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program, which was awarded to the library by the Department of Homeland Security. The grant aims to help organizations promote prospective citizens' assimilation into American civic life by funding educational programs designed to increase their knowledge of English, U.S. history, and civics.
Bring your green card when you register. A $50 refundable attendance deposit is required (check or money order).
The main library is located at 8411 Bergenline Ave. and the Kennedy Branch is at 2123 Kennedy Blvd. For more information call 201-869-4715 or visit www.nbpl.org.
